I'm really hoping this is the NSBB version of The Insider.

Boy, who knew that Elon Musk was a complete horsefeathering lunatic? WEIRD.

https://www.wired.com/story/elon-musk-t ... gafactory/

Musk was spending the weekend in the Gigafactory, attempting to discover why machines weren’t functioning, why parts kept misaligning, why the software was crashing. Musk had demanded that his factories be automated as much as possible. But among the consequences of this extreme roboticization were delays and malfunctions. Tesla had spent more than $1 billion building the Gigafactory, and almost nothing was going as planned.

At about 10 o’clock on Saturday evening, an angry Musk was examining one of the production line’s mechanized modules, trying to figure out what was wrong, when the young, excited engineer was brought over to assist him.

“Hey, buddy, this doesn’t work!” Musk shouted at the engineer, according to someone who heard the conversation. “Did you do this?”

The engineer was taken aback. He had never met Musk before. Musk didn’t even know the engineer’s name. The young man wasn’t certain what, exactly, Musk was asking him, or why he sounded so angry.

“You mean, program the robot?” the engineer said. “Or design that tool?”

“Did you horsefeathering do this?” Musk asked him.

“I’m not sure what you’re referring to?” the engineer replied apologetically.

“You’re a horsefeathering idiot!” Musk shouted back. “Get the horsefeathers out and don’t come back!”

The young engineer climbed over a low safety barrier and walked away. He was bewildered by what had just happened. The entire conversation had lasted less than a minute. A few moments later, his manager came over to say that he had been fired on Musk’s orders, according to two people with knowledge of the situation. The engineer was shocked. He’d been working so hard. He was set to get a review from his manager the next week, and had been hearing only positive things. Instead, two days later, he signed his separation papers.

This is a brutal read:

https://www.propublica.org/article/bloo ... ABaehfDmgo

“Surviving your child’s murder, only to find out that you’re being accused of murdering your child, is a kind of trauma that I wouldn’t wish on any living being,” said Rea, now 50. “I wouldn’t wish it on a snake.”


This is the latest article in a series on the pseudo-science of blood spatter analysis in forensic investigations. I haven't read the series yet, but it seems interesting and disturbing.

Seriously, kudos. The entire hour was dedicated to climate change and it was a good discussion. CNN probably would have given a half hour to climate deniers.

Just demand the transcript ahead of time. That way you can live fact check it, and as an added bonus we can see if he's actually able to read.

Probably not, but I'm of the belief that his inane ramblings and off the cuff remarks do him more damage than good. Something like a planned speech, his team can't just fall back on 'he misspoke' or 'he got a number wrong'...they'll have to answer to every idiotic thing that comes out of his mouth if he goes off script.

Are the people that are good at that still around? I'm not sure anyone is left in that admin that's good at anything.
